Khador - The End?

 The dirty Khadorians, a long project that is finally done.
 Included in the army is an objective (from the Warmachine objective set), which was finished just in time for GottaCon.  Hopefully that big barrel of coal was useful!
 This wave also saw some Iron Fang cavalry (called 'Uhlans') as well as the solo; Markov.
 Markov was my favourite of all the cavalry, I seem to prefer the standing poses for horses compared to the leaping ponies.

 Also, keeping with the lance theme, a spriggan.  I roughed this 'jack a little more than the others.  I have been using the packing foam (from blister packs) to splotch on the chips in the paint, which is both fun and effective.
 Those long lances pose a problem on the tabletop, so each one has a long pin, allowing for easy removal when charging.  I was going to replace the pin with some magnets, but they fit very tight, so the pins stayed.
 Is this the end of Khador posts?

Not a chance!
Until next round, be well.

Cyriss - Machine Core

 Having jumped into Warmachine with both feet, and becoming a Press Ganger (a PP volunteer and event organizer), it is time to collect ALL the factions.  At the very least, I am aiming to have all the battlegroups.  When it is demo time, I will have a wide range of forces to try out.  I already have Cryx and Cygnar, so was time to finish up the other 'c'; Convergence of Cyriss.
 This faction is all about the superiority of the machine.  With their leaders conversing in some kind of binary with a comet named Cyriss, the Convergence aims to make the world a more orderly and clockwork place.
 They also like to use big technical words.
 These guys (and all my other batllegroups) will be tearing it up all weekend at GottaCon.  If you are going to be there and haven't experienced the awesome of Warmachine, find me near the Iron Arena and I can introduce you.
 .......Robots!!



 Until next round....
....be well.

Dark Eldar - The Iron Thorn

 Another batch of minis done!  This time I got to paint up some sweet dark eldar on bases made from coolness.
 The archon, mostly plastic with some finecast bits.  I like this pose a lot.  Not only is he standing on some elevation, but the model itself is still standing straight.  Always something to keep in mind with epic basing.


 The venoms, with magnetized gunners.  As is usual for eldar, lots of line-highlights.


 And the two five-xenos warrior squads.  Each warrior has a turquoise shoulder pad to differentiate between units.
Until next round, be well.

Gamesday Minis of Old

 These two minis are from the old days, when I wore a red shirt in a hobby centre.  Both of them are Gamesday minis, those one-time exclusives that exist to look cool.
 Back then, I was trying to push my painting skills to a 'Eavy Metal standard.  Trying different techniques on non-gaming pieces, those minis that are destined to sit on a shelf looking nice, gives a painter a nice break from the uniform pallet of painting armies.
 I have decided to put these two up on ebay and clear off that display shelf...they could become yours!



 Until next round...
Be well.

Space Wolves - More Teeth

 Another wave of Space Wolves are finished.  Some bloodclaws, grey hunters and great wolves.  There was some longfangs and tokens, but I seem to not have pictures of them.
 In other news, the desklop I was previously using stopped making whirring noises so I am back on the loptop.  Which should explain why I haven't been on the book of faces lately.
GottaCon fast approaches, and minis need paint....
Until next round!

Cygnar - As Played by Bruce Campbell

 My Cygnar army has a theme; lots of guns.  So it was obvious that I would go with Caine as my primary 'caster.  In his background, he is portrayed as the most shady and independent warcaster in the kingdom, which suits me fine.  After a few games with the Lt. it was hard to use any other Cygnar 'caster, he is pretty solid.  I'm looking forward to picking up his epic version, just for gunfighter if nothing else.
 I would like to see a live-action Warmachine movie, and I think the talented Bruce would be an obvious choice for Caine.
Until next round, be well.

Cryx - Bodyguard

 Ogrun bokurs are pretty useful, especially for Cryx, since they bring to the table a couple things they lack in-faction.  These being shield guard and focus-free hitting power.  It is likely that this guy will be following Hellbringer around.
Until next round, be well.

Khador - Artillery

 The "dirty Khadorians" have a couple of these in the list.  So many winterguard...
Just a quick post, be well.

Cryx - Banes!!

 Here is another staple in most Cryx forces; banes.  This guy, Bane Lord Tartarus, is the character solo with the nasty little habit of bringing more thralls to the field as he kills things.  I often just shoot him from afar.
 And you can't really run Tartar(Sauce) without a mob of bane thralls.
Until next round, be well.

Space Wolves - Lord of Wolves

 Every so often I get the chance to paint up a Forge World mini, and it is definitely something to look forward to.  In this case it is a terminator Wolf Lord with some pretty awesome armour.
 This mini was converted by the client, with some weapon and head swaps and some added bitz.  I really like the fact that some action was conveyed in the pose (those older, static, terminators were boring).  Definitely looks like he is giving someone a good shield bash.
 I am really enjoying the "Emperor's Executioners".  It is a chapter packed with details which make each marine an individual with each marine's armour telling some of the warrior's story (and the Norse-feel helps too).
Until next round, be well.
